Yesterday I picked up my tank, and found a few bargains along the way so ended up setting up my tank!
The tank before i cleaned it
The tank again, after i cleaned it and in its permenant home:
I decided I didnt want a layered substrate showing so I put sand all around the edges before adding soil:
the soil, and going through it to pick out sticks and stones (lol)
In the tank:
Now the fun part! The plants:
At this point I was tired (it was about 3am lol) So I didnt take step by step pictures...
The finished product, the day after, still a bit cloudy but thats fine. My filter is in the mail so hasnt been set up yet, but i do have some MTS digging around in there.
I wont be adding fish for another month or so, so I am hoping the plants fill in, I still need java moss and I have a piece of driftwood to put in.
